education. so that gets us how do we deal with educational site. i do want to go into that. then you come to the question of how do you come how do we make a more effective and priority. i don't know how it happened, but we stuck with the history stuck with a history in a is that was very excellent education. and we. and were regarded as everybody basically is back to the ford model. you have kindergarten through 12, then you go to college, and if you haven't achieved that you are really worthless, right? so that's not working. i think we have to go back to origin and say let's make it more flexible and let's also bring -- you asked early on where is opportunity. i think that is the most natural opportunity for cooperation to, in fact, it's happening already. we have a number of programs on the way they successfully. there's a big challenge there, and that is a challenge that most people today that goes when education system don't even understand what a manufacturing job looks like. the image that they have been manufactured you is you come in early in the month with a white shirt and you
have some extraordinary assets in this country. we have a highly educated and motivated work force that in many respects outperforms, not out educated about from a point of view workers in virtually every effort country. we have the most efficient capital markets in the world. our companies have the lowest cost of capital of any companies anywhere around the globe. we have a spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation and capitalist system and commitment to a capitalist system that is the envy of virtually every other country in the world, and we also have increasingly as elude it to in the earlier panel have always had a very strong natural resources, but with shale oil and gas and the incredible strength of our agricultural industry we have a great natural resources as well so there's a lot to be bullish about in this country in terms of our economic opportunities, but this fiscal deficit, our fiscal policy is an enormous cloud on us reaching that potential and i work on the investment banking industry i used to be in the money-management industry. there is a phrase that sometimes
've only felt that the public itself needed to be engaged more on financial reform, to educate themselves better, make an issue with their elected officials. i have some policy recommendations at the end of the. i hope people will look at this recent. >> the former head of the fdic, sheila bair on the government's role during the country's worst financial crisis since the depression. her book is "bull by the horns." sunday night at eight on c-span's q&a. >> next comic kansas governor sam brownback delivers his third state of the state address. in his remarks before the joint session of the house and senate, he gave his plans for balancing the state budget which faces a projected shortfall of $267 million for the fiscal year beginning july 1. this event in topeka is 25 minutes. >> good evening. mr. speaker, madam president, -- [applause] you jumped my laundry now going to have to repeat. you will have to do that again, i hope. i was just looking at her thinking there's a lot of new faces here. welcome. good to have you in the legislature. it's going to be a great you and they do have befor
as a psychologist having problems with one of my troops i would try and educate them on some of the information and how a person who's suffering from ptsd might comport themselves in the challenges they would have specifically. by providing that information to the commanders that were ahead of the person in the unit, they were able to understand and maybe take a different factor towards helping the person. >> thank you. >> to have the senior flag officers testify of course and also waiting throughout the morning panel used to have a practice at the commission that the government witnesses would be on the first panel and they object to that inappropriate cases but the reason i'm pointing it out -- i will mention one other thing. the past few times we've invited someone from the department of justice the federal law mandates all federal agencies shall cooperate fully with the commission. they won't send to testify at any time in the past couple of years. so it kind of the allies at least one false myth and that is that the military doesn't take this issue very seriously. so after trying to compli
, michigan also is diversifying, bringing in high-tech, various kinds of service, health care, education and so on. and places like university of michigan, ann arbor, are a tremendous resource for entrepreneurs, people trying to develop new high-tech business businesses. so it is a good sign to see that america still has a powerful industrial base but it is diversifying into a wide range of new types of industries. so it is a large and complex economy. i don't know if you want to talk about the broader economy or not, but you could come back to it if you like, but you know, we have been seeing some improvement in the labor market, it's still not we would like it to be. growth has been moderate. there are some positive signs to look at, and i think one of the key positives, i made reference to, is housing. as you know, house prices in the u.s. felt about 30% and the amount of construction felt extraordinary over this recession. and now for the first time, really since 2007, 2006, we are starting to see increases in production, house prices, that will affect household wealth. that's one po
. okay mr. willard? >> i would offer the question of education and trains as a potential lesson here is an excellent one. it is one of the significant lessons from fukushima. we frankly find that there very often training lessons learned from any number of occurrences throughout industry. in this particular case, when you think about the magnitude of the event and the situation that the operators at this particular nuclear site found themselves in, it was unpress kented in any of the education and training. i think one of the hess sons is to take that idea of a mag feud event that exceeds what we general design in to our sites and going both educate what defense and depth can really provide and train to the coping strategies in a situation like that that would be, you know, that may allow the level of resilience that may not have been designed in to site in the first place. it's just, you know, this was remarkable in the scope there were courageous operators that remain at the watch at the fukushima attempting to mitigate what happened to them. obviously, in retrospect additional edu
will essentially be cut close to have been the next decade. and so, we are talking about education programs. were talking about health programs, including nih research. were talking about infrastructure. we're talking that key domestic discretionary programs that are so important for the lives of the vast majority of the american people. so let me just say two things about that. number one, there has to be a balance. and number two, i think it is fido, as the president said so clearly yesterday, that the debt ceiling essentially must not use to say what then that essentially takes on and essentially undoes the basic full faith and credit of the united states of america. the president made so clear what would he have staked if that were to happen and i just think it's so critical that not occur. you know, i've been through these battles as i've said for many decades, but i don't remember anyone essentially saying we should go over the cliff in terms of the full faith and credit of the united states. the consequences with teeth, i think, to not take, potentially cataclysmic. and for the republicans

investments in infrastructure. we say that training and education must be expanded to build the workforce we need for a 21st century global economy. and we call for an expanded focus on ports, exports and advanced manufacturing to great more jobs in america and reduce our trade imbalance. on all of these issues we took aggressive action. our conference of mayors engage direct with the obama administration and congress through every step of fiscal cliff negotiations. at the national press club on september 15, we released a letter to vice president scott smith, our second vice president kevin johnson and i drafted, 131 of our mayors sign, calling on congress to adopt a bipartisan and balanced approach deficit reduction by incorporating spending cuts with additional revenue. we took the same message to both political conventions and to the presidential debate where mayors of both parties were active and visible participants, speaking for commonsense solutions to the pending fiscal crisis. in just one week after the election, our leadership came to washington. we met with the vice president bid
to affordable housing and quality education. senator schumer invited him to open the luncheon with a prayer in recognition of his long history of service. >> and i would, if i would just really quick, um, this doesn't speak specifically to the hispanic-american community, but, um, in shuffling my notes i did miss the fact we wanted to make sure that everyone knew that merely evers williams who is the widow of med garre evers will also be doing the invocations to the official event. and, again, this really ties into the fact that this is an event that looks back at the history of our country as well as forward to where the president wants to take us as a country. so we think that'll be a very nice way to open the event and a nice nod towards the civil rights movement and the part it's played not only in the president's life, but also in the country's life. >> with why don't we go to this side over here. sir? >> [inaudible] just want to know -- [inaudible] coming, and if there is a list for us and why don't we see that.

. she was doing everything she could to educate the many children in the camp. many of the syrian children have not gone -- have now gone two years knowing little else but war and misery and homelessness, losing friends and families and the ideal pray for radicals. this woman warned us that the syrian children and her words would seek revenge on those that did not help syria in its hour of greatest need. conflict has gone now for nearly two years. many americans assumed that by now a sun would have left power in the violence would have ended. it is not. 60,000 people are dead, and there is no end in sight. there is a dire need to restart the conversation and the congress across the country about america's role and responsibility in helping the syrian people. at eight of us would agree that at the center of this conversation is the realization that the indiscriminate and escalating use of airpower is one factor among all others that enables them to continue this onslaught against the syrian people. if you wish to be relevant to the conflict we must have a serious debate about how r
